The Moab Ventilator boot fits well and allows a great, stable walk regardless of terrain.
What I like best is that my feet are always dry - unlike the waterproof Moab (the waterproof Moabs do not breathe

    I bought these to replace my low cut Merrell Moabs, really great so far.

    Great pair of shoes. Broke in after a few days of use.

    I have mixed feelings about these boots. First time ever owning a pair of these and bought them based on the reviews. They are super comfy, one of the most comfortable boots I've ever owned, but after my second hike the shoe string loop broke. I don't even have 15 miles on these boots and only wore them twice, there should be no reason for that loop ripping. They need to use the old fashioned grommet holes or just a standard hole through the shoe. I don't know if I should order another pair and risk having this happen again because they are good boots. I hope merrel will change this defect because I would for sure buy another pair if they did.

    I've never had problems with hiking boots before but these were a disaster.
    They're squishy and soft like slippers, and I suppose because they offer so little support, whenever I try to hike in these, both feet are really sore the next day. No other hiking shoes I have do that to me.
    Even weirder, they leave some kind of black paint or powder on my toes that's hard to wash off.
    Into the trash with these.

    My son needed a good, supportive boot as he camps at least once a month, but we didn't want to spend $200 because we aren't sure his foot is done growing. This boot is comfortable and he wore it straight out of the box and hiked 14 miles over two days with a large pack, and did not have any blisters or issues. They got rained on and I haven't noticed any odor, so the antimicrobial treatment must actually work. Very happy with this purchase and the prices at STP!

  • “are these hiking boots water proof?”
    Asked by brandon from minnesota on 6/26/2017 11:18:35 AM

    • My experience with the Merrell Moab Ventilator Mid Hiking Boot is a blend of waterproofness.

      My feet stay dry when I am walking in the rain or through heavy, dew-wet grass. If I walk in water that is not over the top of my boot, the hydrostatic pressure will force water into the boot.

      The problem that I experience with the waterproof boots is that my feet are always damp/wet at the end of the day. With the Moab Ventilators, my feet are always dry, even after a day of hiking or working in my garden (planting and watering provide plenty of opportunities for wet boots).
      Answered on 6/26/2017 1:19:35 PM by Stephen Stuart from New York
    • No, actually pull water in as they are ventilated. I swap out inner soles on colder and damp spring days.

    • The Ventilator is not waterproof. But there is a Merell Moab model that is waterproof. It should be listed as such and will cost you 25-50$ more.

  • “How is the width of these? (Particularly the toe box?)
    Asked by Maizegirl from Indiana on 6/8/2017 5:26:18 AM
    • I have a low volume, medium arch, size 13 foot. I.e. "skinny feet" These boots have plenty of room in the toe box for me. They fit somewhat loosely there so I have to pull up the laces a bit more than I do with my Patagonia boots. Overall it's more of a comfort fit rather than a performance fit. That said, my feet don't slide around at all in them.

    • I have a 2e foot and the normal width is good. Since they are soft there is lots of give. They are a great shoe for breathable hiking.

    • True to size for my 45 (11D+) northern European feet. Merrill in my experience have a wide toe box. These are no exception, I.e., roomy,but neither foot nor heel slippage.

    • I am supposed to have "wide" feet and these boots fit good. Feel good. They are still new to me so I don't know about their "wearing" capacity. And, I don't know if they are waterproof. But, this doesn't bother me because I don't intend to wear them in wet conditions. So far am very satisfied.

    • No, they are not waterproof. I bought them for use in Arizona mainly, but also for use in the Summer for day hikes. Since they are not waterproof, they breathe very well. I do have waterproof boots for rainy, wet, or muddy hikes.

    • I haven't worn these boots under any wet conditions but they aren't advertised as being waterproof so I doubt they are.They are a comfortable hiking/knocking around boot.

      They are well ventilated,so your feet will stay dry.
      I have hiked with both the waterproof and the ventilated Moab.
      The Ventilator is my choice.

      I would suggest looking up reviews on Google where they have been used as hiking boots under different conditions.

    • I haven't tried them in a downpoar, but on wet rock (from previous night rain) they were above average. Good soft Vibram holds well. Rock was rough sandstone, don't know how they would work og glacial polished granite - think Yosemite.

    • They are great! They have lots of traction on all surfaces. However, they are a light hiker so there is not a lot of support and this model is not waterproof at all. They are cool and vent great.

  • “How is the fit? True to normal sizing?”
    Asked by Mike in Salt Lake from UT on 1/28/2017 10:44:40 AM
    • I normally use a size 10...these worked better at 10.5...thus run ~ 1/2 size small.
      Two widths possible...did not like the wide as too loose. Buy accordingly.

About Merrell

The story of Merrell boots all started with a guy named Randy Merrell, who began handcrafting leather hiking boots back in 1981, shortly after graduating from industrial shoemaking school. By the mid-80s, Randy’s boots had already gained critical acclaim before being named “best boots in the world” by Backpacker Magazine. The next decade saw the arrival of new footwear, including the ever-popular Jungle Moc, which helped launch the after-sport category. Today, Merrell hiking boots, running shoes and sneakers are still among the best on the market, always combining the newest technology, innovative designs and outstanding comfort. Whether you hike, run, walk or just appreciate high-quality shoes and boots, we’re confident that you’ll love Merrell shoes.
